Medal for Tony Blair is another low for George Bush

Issue No. 2133

George Bush is to award Tony Blair – along with former Australian prime minister John Howard and Colombian president Alvaro Uribe – with the laughingly titled Presidential Medal of Freedom.

These people have done all they can to aid Bush’s attempt to increase US power around the world and have killed hundreds of thousands of people in the process.

It would be nice to think this will be Bush’s final outrageous act while in office.

But his unconditional support for Israel’s onslaught on Gaza shows that his last days as president will mean more of the policies that have had such a destructive impact on the world.
